After 3 days of survey, we had 230 respondents and several opinions on the issue. We take this opportunity to share with you some comments from some users.

Some Interesting Comments About Polls

Several users gave their views on the survey. We share with you so that it can help you.

Hussam HM (translated into French)

According to Hussam,

“kids use Elementor, adults ACF Pro and legends create their own blocks.”

After the question about what added value it could have to create your own blocks if you could use an existing tool to save time, he answered.
“When you add plugins, it adds their own css and js files, and adds some kind of extra classes to your website. What slows down your website, affects the structure of your website and, most importantly, affects the compatibility of the website.

Todd Gimlin

I've never seen a site using Elementor that had a Google PageSpeed ​​Insights score that couldn't be VASTLY improved by getting rid of Elementor. I will never hire a developer who uses Elementor because they want to.

Question. So, I'm a beginner on WordPress, how to do custom code on WordPress?

Prositeweb Inc.

It actually depends on your PHP skills. Knowing PHP will be a great start to combining your skills with some plugins. As you start to gain confidence, you can increasingly eliminate certain plugins that you think affect the quality of the websites you create.

Our recommendations on the criteria for choosing a web creation tool (WordPress)

After several years of creating websites in WordPress and several other content managers, we were faced with several problems.

  • Flexibility in management. Is the end user able to modify his site as easily as possible?
  • Technical support. If necessary, is it easy to find people who will be able to make the necessary adjustments?
  • Adaptability to other solutions. How far is it possible to graft a solution with other tools?
  • The continuity. Is it possible to maintain and delegate without having to depend on the developer?

When you can answer these questions, being able to choose your tool becomes easier. At prositeweb, we mainly use modern website design tools. Our choice is generally based on customer needs. When a client is open to the option of a bespoke website, we will use the ACF Pro.

Conclusion.

There are thousands of tools for creating websites in WordPress. However, you must make an assessment in order to make good decisions. Prositeweb remains at your disposal to assist you in the process.
